The scary thing is, I knew that the crap program I wrote when I started was crap at the time, but I was behind schedule, the requirements had changed 15 times, and I couldn't think of a better way to write it.
Reputation aside, I seldom have any trouble with non-emergency calls from my AT&T iPhone, and the landline is only useful if you're at home, preferably in the same room as the phone.
The good thing about Thunderbird is, it's cross-platform. The bad is, it sucks on all of them.
I always thought MS Money was comparable to Quicken at the time. Of course Intuit has had quite a few years to work on Quicken since then, so Money, when MS quit working on it, was a lot better than Quicken is now.
It will, if it's an Asimov car. The law should only be Second Rule. No death to humans is the First.
My mom was away from home for a couple of months, and she probably DID have 2,000 letters, mostly junk mail, requests from charities, and political solicitations.
I said something like this at K5, long ago when I still gave a damn. "If you have 12 trolls in 1,000 users, you barely notice them. If you have 12 trolls in 20 users, you DO notice them!".
Paywalls lower the membership. They don't necessarily lower the troll population, and judging by K5, it only increases their percentage.
Unix doesn't let a regular user mess with system files, or other user's files, but it doesn't stop a user from running a trojan that screws up his own crap.
Not to mention the fun in Binging from Bong.
Also, Vista was crammed on machines with 512 MB of RAM. I used it on 1 GB, and it was pretty damn slow. How could anyone think it would work in half that?
I thought it was Found On Road Dead.
Perfect timing. I just sent a cow-orker some email and got an OOO message. I understand that she's not here and won't deal with it until she gets back. But it's still important email, and she needs to know about it when she does return.
The problem is, if your roommate really does wind up dead, and there's evidence pointing to you, the police will ask Siri who did it, and she'll tell on you.
The reason I'd want a flying car is so I could avoid all the idiots by flying over them. It wouldn't be so much fun when the idiots have them and are flying around while talking on their phones! Yikes!!
Design, but looking at a dachshund, I wouldn't use the term "intelligent".
